At Korn Ferry, we believe we all share far more commonality than differences, that we have an inherent need to live with purpose and provide a better future for those that follow. As a global firm of more than 8,600 employees, we take seriously the role Korn Ferry plays, the example we can set, and the responsibility the firm has as a corporate citizen.
Korn Ferry is built upon a foundation of trust, respect, and service — with and to our clients, employees, and the communities where we work and live. At Korn Ferry, we see corporate responsibility as an important opportunity to change people’s lives and to accelerate the overarching goals of our clients. We approach everything through this lens as we support our people and community, live our values, and promote global sustainability.”
Gary D. Burnison
Chief Executive Officer
At Korn Ferry, our responsibility as a global corporation is central to our vision. Our commitment to act ethically begins with each of us and is embedded in our core values which guide the way we work together and with others. We believe connecting genuinely with others can only be done by removing the ‘professional’ façade. Becoming more Radically Human. Being true. Being you.
We embrace people with different points of view, from all backgrounds. And we think and work as one team.
We say what we mean and we do what we say. We hold ourselves to the highest standards. And we make it safe for people to speak out when they see something wrong.
We are insatiably curious, always learning new things. And we actively help our colleagues grow and develop, too, with mentoring and support.
We never settle for the status quo. We always strive to be better today than we were yesterday and do our best for our clients, colleagues, and shareholders.
We aspire to build a world-class organization. One that is aligned with our strategy and staffed by a skilled, motivated, and agile workforce. To do so, we focus on talent acquisition, development, and rewards.
Inclusion is intentionally the first of our four core values and a pillar of our firm. We believe in building strong teams of people with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives.
It is not just about our people; it is about all people. We work together, and individually, to support the communities where we live and work.
We all have an obligation to think about what we are leaving behind for future generations. At Korn Ferry, we have a strong desire to minimize our impact in an energy- and carbon-constrained world.
